Eighth of nine parts: Working without goggles and drawing lines in stone -- without going blind.
This feature-length al fresco interview examines the creative life and working methods of California's unique self-made monumental sculptor John Fisher. A man with his own unique story, John knows how to tell compelling stories.
As a budding California artist, Fisher found his talents widely nurtured until he elected to study fine arts after high school graduation. His parents refused his wish to apply for the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, so John left home and "studied" art in college as a non-student. After that stunt, John left for Italy to pursue his passion under the marble mountains of Michelangelo. Two decades later the sculptor returned with his wife and daughter to California to establish their own studios in the Mendocino redwoods where his Carrera marble masterworks glisten against deep shadows while he cross-examines his complex creative process.
